11:08 am
are expected to eventually go home. learning turkish is just one example of how syrians are having to put down roots here. >> as long as there is no international will to remove isil or topple the syrian regime despite the hundreds of thousands of people killed and the barrel bombs that fall every day, we can't go back. we have big hopes to go back but the facts show we cannot. >> there are more than half a million syrians in the province. all are escaping the war back home. >> we are a five-member family and i had a new baby. for any family, the situation is relatively hard, because of the lack of work opportunities. i don't think of leaving turkey to go to europe. i'm waiting for any chance to go back to syria. >> syrians know they are likely here for the long haul.

11:11 am
what do you hope is going to happen? >> it has been confirmed until tomorrow morning arguments will be heard tomorrow morning at 11:30. >> why do you believe that he should be kept in the country and that he should be handed over? >> we believe that his presence triggers the obligations to arrest him and we need to ensure it until the court reaches the decision -- >> this is not at great line. we've heard that the sudanese government said he will go home
11:12 am
regardless. is there anything stopping him if the court rules that he shouldn't leave? i mean, can he still go if he wants to? >> to take all the necessary step to say ensure -- so the african authorities have an obligation to make sure that he remains in the country and so irrespective of when the summit begins, president bashir is required -- >> good to talk to up. quite dramatic stuff there in johannesburg. >> the iraqi military said fighters from islamic state of iraq and the levant have blown up three car bombs targeting an army base. it happened at the village south of fallujah. 13 soldiers are said to have been killed, including an army commander. as the battle against isil continues, the political party
11:13 am
is marking the anniversary of a militia group the popular mobilization forces have been both effective and controversial. imran kahn reports from baghdad. >> it's a year since the religious authority in iraq, the grand ayatollah called all iraqis regardless of sex to arms. tens of thousands heeded his call with the popular mobilization forces formed. most who joint were shia muslims. the army's reputation was in tatters, isil overran them with ease taking over a third of the country while al-maliki was the prime minister. he blamed the u.s. government for the collapse of the army, saying much needed weaponry was never delivered. >> the war effort must focus on the popular mobilization forces until we're liberated and get rid of isil, lib rate our land and go back to building the army with new rules and not on a
11:14 am
sectarian bases. >> sectarianism remains in the headlines, militias accused of revenge attacks burning the bodies of isil fighters and pushing a sectarian agenda. in anbar predominantly sunni tribal leaders were angered to much they pledged allegiance to isil. >> those thinking the mobilization forces are just shia be wrong. they are foul all iraqis. >> some are supported by iran, which applies weapons and training. on the battlefield the supporters are backed any u.s. led airstrikes. in effect, iran and united states are on the same side. >> it is overwhelmingly shia. there is another question, why not just make these militia part of the regular iraqi army.
11:15 am
the answer lie to say that question in iraq's very complicated political land scape. >> each of iraq's religious groups is affiliated to a political party. many also control media organizations and militias. they are technically under the control of the commander-in-chief under prime minister al abadi but answer to the faction that controls them. all are united in the battle against ice will, however sectarian suspicions run deep and the positive larr mobilization forces remain controversial. >> a south korean hospital stops surgical operations after more mers is reported. >> protestors take the symbol of democracy back to the streets in hong kong. >> in sport great goals between
11:16 am
argentina and uruguay in chile in the copa games. >> the u.n. envoy to yemen is insisting peace talks will take plates in geneva monday, but the houthi delegation hasn't left a schedule. seven houthis have been killed in the town. we are joined life from geneva. what's expected then? i believe the talks will go ahead whether the houthis are coming or not, is that the deal? >> well, basically the international community and the u.n. in particular are not hoping to see some sort of break through here in geneva, but at least say they would like to see the yemeni factions start a political dialogue about how to
11:17 am
move forward how to put an end to the violence and instability in the country. if that happens, they will start talking about implementing a ceasefire across the country but then you have some issues that they have to overcome. basically, the government says that the houthis have to put order in all the cities they captured over the last months. sanna and taiz and aden. the houthis say that they cannot pull out from those areas, that they are willing to negotiate an overall settlement where they want to have bigger political representation in yemen. >> is there anything from previous meetings that might help move the process forward?
11:18 am
>> sorry, i couldn't hear you. >> is there anything from previous meetings that might help move the process forward? anything that was agreed upon -- >> there were high hopes that they would be able to -- i see. that they would be able to announce a ceasefire before talks start as sort of confidence building measure. that didn't happen. the fighting is flaring up across the country and airstrikes continue. this is exactly why the international community is hoping to have the two parties basically houthis and representatives of the former president ali abdullah saleh on the one hand, the government and the other parties try to start political talks face-to-face. that won't happen the first day. the first day will be talks in separate rooms with united nations envoys shuttling back and forth trying to present new ideas and see how they can move forward. i think one of the biggest issues be they are trying to
11:19 am
overcome is basically put some international observers on the ground to monitor houthis pulling out from areas particularly from the south. the houthis said initially that they would like to talk about that condition but i think unless they get some sort of major concessions from president hadi, they will pull out of those areas. it's a very delicate situation here in jew. >> obviously the pressure is on because of the grave humanitarian situation. thank you. >> the u.k. has pulled spies from overseas operations after russia and china cracked top secret files in the possession of whistle blower edward snowden, currently in russia where he was granted asylum in 2013. rory that will challands is in moscow. >> the russian government is unlikely to shout about this story. first of all this sunday times
11:20 am
report quotes unnamed sources within the u.k. government. it's not yet the official position of the u.k. government itself. until that becomes official position, the russian government is not likely to say too much about it. secondly the russian government does not really make too many comments about intelligence matters, ever, and if it has access to a large supply of intelligence from edward snowden, it's going to want to use that to best effect and best effect is not going to be saying candidly what information it has and doesn't have. thirdly, russia that said its hosting of edward snowden is purely a humanitarian gesture and not to do with any intelligence gains that might come along with that and as easy as that position may found russia is going to be unlikely to want to blow that story. if russia says anything, it's
11:21 am
probably going to be along the lines of this is a smear campaign from the british intelligence services and american government against edward snowden to cover britain the intelligence gathering misdeeds. within the report, it should be fairly easy for them to make that claim if they want to do so. >> a cleanup is under way in georgia after the river was opportunity into a torrent. lions, tigers, bears and wolves have been roaming the streets after their cages at the tbilisi zoo was damaged. >> a hip pope wanders the roads freed control captivity by a deadly storm. elsewhere, a brown bear takes ref final on an air conditioning unit, while a big cat lurks around the doorway of a big building. heavy rainfall lately saturday sent flash floods surging
11:22 am
through tbilisi. many families are left homeless with the mayor suggesting the repair bill will run into the tens of millions of dollars. with large parts of the zoo still underwater, it's unclear how many animals have perished or how many are still on the loose. one by one the animals are being corned, some killed, others recaptured. as of yet there are no reports of attacks on humans, throw three zoo workers are confirmed to have died in a flooding, including one, a zoo keeper who lost an arm in a tiger attack last month. residents have been warned to stay indoors until the remaining animals can be found and captured. al jazeera. >> dozens of migrants are stuck in the italian town on the border with france. french border police are blocking them from entering the country. the migrants are camping out on

11:24 am
we have the story. >> the medical center in seoul were you ever south korea's largest, busiest and most prestigious hospital has suspended the bulk of its services after being identified as the he. i center of the spread of mers, the middle east respiratory syndrome. >> we will partially close the hospital to focus on counter acting mers. other than emergency operations, we are going to temporarily restrict out patient treatment hospitalization and operations. we will also limit people coming in to visit patients. in the city on high alert people are taking every precaution to help contain the outbreak. using hand sanitizers and facemasks, with some call on did he vine help. >> i prayed for god to save our nation and rad date mers from our land. >> while i was operating i asked for a quick toned mers.
11:25 am
>> so far the virus is confined to hospitals medical staff parties and their visitors. the world health organization said there's no evidence that suggest that mers spreading into wider community or that the virus is mutating into one more easily passed between people. south korea's government is keeping a close watch on all infections. >> as of june 14, 7 more cases have occurred and the total number of infected people is 145. >> mers was diagnosed in south korea nearly a month ago in a businessman who returned from a trip to the middle east. it's the largest outbreak outside saudi arabia where the disease was first identified in people three years ago. a hospital in slovakia is testing a south korea men suspected of mers after he fell ill there. al jazeera. >> more coming up straight ahead, years after retiring from

11:30 am
refugees away from the turkish border. these pictures are said to show fighters from islamic state of iraq and the levant moving crowds back from a fence in the town of taiz. >> let's go back to the restraining order against the sudanese president omar bashir wanted since 2009 when he became the first ruling head of state to be indict by the i.c.c., accusing him of ordering atrocities in darfur, which killed 300,000 people. he's avoided going to france, turkey and south africa in the past after being warned against traveling there but chad and departmentdong go have allowed him to visit. what have you made of the action
11:31 am
of the court deliberating whether to remove him? >> i think from legal point of view, we would say that it was a victory, really, trying to ensure that south africa implements its international obligations and that the statute ratified but also domesticated in the country and from that legal point of view, it is a victory. the question is is it a victory that can be translated into really reality and that's where politics come in, because that al bashir was invited to attend the a.u. summit. the a.u. adopted conditions where it says that the sitting heads of state and senior government officials cannot be tried or arrested while they are
11:32 am
in office. they have to wait until their time in office is over. south africa is caught up between those two petitions -- >> i'm going to ask you -- who will stop him from going federal wants to go, considering what you laid out the fact that the many african union members don't want to see him in court? is there anybody who accounted stop him going if he wanted to go? >> that is quite clear. no, i think that the court has made a petition. who will stop him from going? it is the police, the national prosecuting authority or the immigration officials approximate not the courts. from that point of vow, it is a victory, but just on the legal terms could be a victory but not
11:33 am
in terms of translating it into reality. the way i look at it, is he will participate and he will leave the country and africa will be blamed for not meeting its obligations under the statute of the international criminal court. >> how important do you think so it is for him to go to the i.c.c.? he doesn't look as if he's heading there anywhere soon at this rate, but do you think it's important? >> no, i don't think he will go there. he's been dodging for years now. there's no appetite to go there. there may have been crimes against humanity, war crimes. i don't think they reach the point of calling them genocide,
11:34 am
but crimes which are prescribing the statute of the international criminal court. i don't think he will go there. no criminal say i want to go to court to go tried, they are arrested and taken to court. al bashir is no different from any other suspect from having committed severe crimes like this ones. >> isil aligned fighters are pushed back, a group calling its the shura council won't allow them to take root. >> fighters in eastern libya have been taking shots at isil. these men say they have made gains and pushed back isil. they belong to a coalition of militias who call themselves the
11:35 am
council. people have tried to stop advances. more than a dozen have been injured in the fighting. it flared last week when the council declared war on isil. for months, isil has been trying to bolster its presence with attacks along the coast. isil's propaganda arm uploaded videos of christians being beheaded. in central sirte groups aligned to isil are trying to take control from libya down fighters who back the government in tripoli. isil said it carried out a suicide attack at a checkpoint last month. >> it's an interesting scenario with the local politics in control of the city on an
11:36 am
international level isis versus a broad coordination of different governments. it's a very, very dangerous moment. >> the shura council isn't a new body. hard line groups are also part of the coalition. one of them is led by a former issue mate of guantanamo bay who is considered to be close to al-qaeda. another controversial group is the brigade, one of the strongest members of the coalition. with no central government in charge of libya powerful groups rule areas under their in fluence. representatives was rival government the are considering a u.n. plan for a unity government. general haftar being said must

go many find it hard to imagine how hawks and doves divided along tribal, military and ethnic lines will ever reach an agreement. al jazeera. >> eight at tunisians have been kidnapped. >> thousands marched in hong kong ahead of a parliamentary vote. demonstrators want legislators to veto the package. >> in sweltering heat, they marched through central hong kong. streets were closed as pro democracy reporters returned to where the long running protests began. many were holding what's now the symbol of this protest organizers expected as many as
11:38 am
50,000 people to march. the turnout fell short of expectations. >> we want to gather the assembly to show our support to members of council to vote down the proposal. >> 5,000 police were mobilized to control the crowds. the rally was peaceful, as pro democracy groups called on all legislators to vote down the government's electoral reform package. >> this rally, i think is for those of hong kong citizens that want to make sure of a veto of the vote of a government proposal. residence would be allowed to vote for their executive representative, but all candidates would be approved by china, triggering the protests
11:39 am
last year. >> the government needs a two thirds majority if it's to get the bill passed, but so far it's yet to get that support. al jazeera, hong kong. >> at least six people are missing in china after parts of a nine story apartment block collapsed. pictures from chinese state television show entire floors missing. four people have been rescued so far. it's unclear what caused the building to collapse. >> thousands of men and women who served in the indian army are still fighting an old battle trying to get better pensions, years after leaving the army. >> signing their demand in blood, these men once fought for india. now they're fighting for a better pension. >> this is a battle cry for
11:40 am
equality. many of them retired in their 30s with the same rank but at different times and are paid vastly different pensions. >> they have been fighting for equal pensions since 1973. consecutive governments have promised to pay them their dues, but none have met their demands. this protest, they say, is their final stand. >> this office in the northern state is a front line in the battle. 46,000 men from this area have or are serving in one of the world's biggest armies. a retired colonel leads their fight for a proper pension. >> when the country's faced with an enemy or there's a natural disaster, that's when people remember soldiers. the civilian authorities run after us. otherwise, there's always a
11:41 am
negative attitude towards us. >> it's also families of fallen soldiers who struggle to survive on meager pensions. her husband died in combat 16 years ago. >> it's really difficult to make ends meet with an army pension. i had to marry off four sister in laws. that was a huge expense. earlier, my in laws used to help me out, but now i'm on my own. i cover all my family's expenses. >> it's estimated the government needs to put aside at least $1.4 billion a year to provide the kind of pensions wanted by ex-army personnel. >> any kind of compensation, which is extended by the central government will also affect the state governments in terms of state police force also demanding a special kind of a dispensation. these things have to be taken into account before we think of implementing any policy which has implications for the long term.
11:42 am
>> it's a cost the retired colonel thinks the indian government must budget for to serve future generations. >> the first spacecraft to land on a comet has woken up from a seven month hibernation. batteries died after its amazing landing last november. it appears that solar batteries have been recharged as it hurdles toward the sun on the back of the comet. scientists are excited because 40 seconds worth of new data has been beamed back to earth. keith smith is an astronomer at the u.k.'s royal astronomical society and joins me live from cambridge. why did it wake up, what happened? >> so, what happened is when it landed on the comet it actually fell off its proposed landing target and fell into a trench,
11:43 am
which meant there wasn't enough sunlight fouling on it to keep the batteries charged. the comet as it goes around the sun has got closer and therefore receiving more sunlight than it was back in november. therefore, there's just about enough now falling on the solar panels which are partly in shadow that it can just about power up its transmitter and phone back home and let us know it is still taking data. >> what sort of data are you going to expect from this? we're approximately i in knowing how the solar system was formed and comets are left over bits of the raw material that you use for forming planets during the formation of the solar system. the spacecraft orbiting around the comet and the lander, which has landed on the surface are between them giving us information that we need to understand what this comet is
11:44 am
mate of, how it inner acts getting closer to the sun how it performs with the big tail coming off of it. that helps measure the surface of the comet. it has a drill it can drill into the surface and measure chemicals it's made of. >> how many of these probes do we have around us at the moment? what are they looking for? >> around comets, this is the only one the only spacecraft we have ever sent to a comet. there are a couple of other investigations going on, for example, a mission around saturn. another mission that's orbiting around an asteroid. another coming up in the middle of jump is nasa's new horizon probe which is going to meet
11:45 am
pluto. it will collect a whole lot of interesting data on that. there is a brief window to learn about that particular, what used to be a planet is now called a dwarf planet and that is going to tell and you say lot more information about how our solar system is going to be. >> i look forward to hearing from you about this, thanks, keith. >> still ahead in sport an action packed 24 hours during the 83rd running of the motor sport's most famous endurance race
